Excellent site and pictures. Only just heard of you on the 'Tales from the Country' TV show. Wonderful to see such a place still exists, I have just added it to my list of rail journeys to do. Keep up the good work.

So are the sails going to turn again? Or are they just an aesthetic feature frown?

Dave R Monday, 23 July 2007 17:40
I don't know if the sails will be allowed to turn on the mill. Perhaps E.H can advise on that. The mill used to be open during the summer for visitors but has not been open for about two years now. I would guess that for the sails to turn someone would have to be in the mill to make sure that everything was working properly and to be in a position to stop the sails or feather them if the wind strength was too high.

Andy Barton Monday, 23 July 2007 21:22
My understanding is that the mill has been restored to working condition and the sails will turn again, hopefully when E.H. reopen it to the public. Not sure when that is though.

Great Site, anyone here who has any historical pics of Lowestoft and Lowestoft North railway stations, please email me, I'd love to see them. Done a good google search and cannot find any frown Well done on the site love the pics.

Ian Martin Saturday, 21 July 2007 23:10
Malcolm R. White's book, "The Lowestoft Train" contains hundreds of pictures of the stations and railway around Lowestoft from days gone by. It is a great read and is found in most local bookshops and maybe even online! You should find what you are after in there.

The Berney Mill looks good now that the fantail and the main sails have been installed. The fanwheel turns with the wind and the top of the mill which contains the sails turns into the wind. The sails are obviously capable of turning as well but it seems that they have been locked into position to prevent damage.

I enjoyed the site. It brought back many memories of my home. I was very surprised to see a picture of my home and place of birth on your web site. It's in the two photos you have of Beach Station in Yarmouth, on the right of each photo. The address was 25 Euston Road on the corner of Wellesley Road. My father bought the property in late 1947/48. He opened it as a Guest House and turned it into the Lodge Hotel. We sold the place in 1972. Sadly it burned down and is now a car park. The pics of the station were lovely I spent many an hour as a boy collecting Engine numbers, pity I did not keep the book.
Thanks - a great site

Hi, love the site, was very interested to read all the little comments. I am lucky enough to live on the Berney marshes in one of the few houses, Fleet Farm. Will be back.

I should have mentioned that the late Fred Hewitt took the bed by horse and cart to the Berney mill as he was millkeeper for several years before moving to Hickling, Norfolk.

It is good to know the sails are back on the mill. In the late 40's, I believe, the late Fred Hewitt and his housekeeper Hilda Morter ( my late great aunt) bought an oak bed from Palmer's (name on the side) of Great Yarmouth (still there). It is the bed I use and when I part with it I hope it will go back to the mill.

Terrible quality picture I'm afraid :( as it was taken on my mobile phone. But at least it proves the mill finally has all of its sails on! I never thought this day would come!

Just to let you know all 4 sails are now on the mill. Took a few photos on my mobile phone from Burgh Castle, not much good, but will post them later.

Went to Berney Arms today and the first pair of sails are on. The others should be on tomorrow.

Mark C. T. Healy Wednesday, 23 May 2007 22:41
Indeed,
Have received a mail from Jeff Dyer at EH this evening which is as follows:

"Just to advise that our millwrights arrived on site with the large crane today, and are hoping to have the main sails installed by the weekend."

Regards,

Jeff"

Great News. Is it going to be re-opened to the public this summer does anyone know?

Andy Barton Thursday, 24 May 2007 11:49
Excellent news at last. If anyone is visiting then any photos for this website would be very welcome.

Ian Martin Thursday, 24 May 2007 14:21
Excellent. I decided to have a wander over today and there is a lot of activity on site. Still only the two sails!! At long last!!

Just to let everyone interested know that the sails for the Berney Mill have been delivered to the site and are now laying along side the mill. Will be in touch again when we see something else going on.

Ian Martin Sunday, 13 May 2007 22:22
Excellent News! Can't wait to get up there and have a look. Thanks for the info.

Mark C. T. Healy Tuesday, 15 May 2007 00:22
This is great news at long last!, and good to see the new photo of the sails from Dave Rogers on the Berney Arms Windmill page on this site.

Now that Polkeys Mill has been restored does anyone know when it will be open to the public and when the new moorings outside the mill will be open? At present the new moorings seem complete but there are still No Mooring signs there.

Thanks everyone for the updates. I visited Berney Arms on 12th April and can confirm that the fantail is laying on the grass next to the mill awaiting installation, see the picture. No sign of anyone but I was there at 8am! Maybe things are starting to happen after all. Just the main sails to go!

Dave R Sunday, 22 April 2007 11:48
Hi Andy. We went to the mill on 22nd April and the fan tail is now installed on the top of the mill. No sign of the sails as yet lets hope that they follow shortly. Will send you a photo. Regards Dave R

Mark C. T. Healy Monday, 23 April 2007 00:58
Great to see the progress, and the new photos added to the site.

I have received a response from Jeff Dyer at EH this evening, and assuming its not another false hope, the news is good:

"Just to say that R.Thompson & Son are on site doing preparatory work prior to re-hanging of the fantail. In this regard, the crane should arrive on site on the 19th April in order to carry out this operation. The stocks, clamps and main sails will be returning to site by low loader during the following week. I will advise you when the main sails are to be re-hung nearer the time."

Be good if any Broads locals could verify this with photos! - a good pair of binoculars from Burgh Castle fort/marshes would do the trick as well!

Will post any further info if it comes. smile
